229: How to Use Atomic Habits to Change Your Life

We all have conscious and unconscious habits that determine our quality of life every day. It takes a lot of work and reflection to realize our own habits and their consequences, not to mention the changes we may need to make. Multiply this by every member of the family, and it can feel like a real puzzle. James Clear is here to help in this episode all about habit-making and how certain “atomic habits” can dramatically change everything. James is author of the book Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Break Bad Habits and Build Good Ones and he’s kind of a big deal too! He coaches Fortune 500 companies in habits, decision-making, and continuous improvement skills and his work is used by teams in the NFL, the NBA, and Major League Baseball (which is, of course, my favorite sport!). His knowledge is perfect for families as well, and you can learn everything he teaches the top companies in the world through his online course, the Habits Academy, which has influenced more than 10,000 leaders, manager, coaches, and teachers.
